The The Names of Minimalism: Authorship, Art Music, and Historiography in Dispute - by Patrick Nickleson (book)(book)

Content: A retelling of the history of minimalism and its impact on the concept of authorship. Minimalism stands as the key representative of 1960s radicalism in art music histories—but always as a failed project. In The Names of Minimalism, Patrick Nickleson holds in tension collaborative composers in the period of their collaboration, as well as the musicological policing of authorship in the wake of their eventual disputes. Through examinations of the droning of the Theatre of Eternal Music, Reich’s Pendulum Music, Glass’s work for multiple organs, the austere performances of punk and no wave bands, and Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca’s works for massed electric guitars, Nickleson argues for authorship as always impure, buzzing, and indistinct.

Reference: Reference on page 227. "108. This last image appears in a website cataloging the early chronology of no wave concerts. See, ac- cessed 9 June 2021."
